The non-profit Broadbent Institution (which is not in operation yet) is accepting donations in lieu of flowers for Jack Layton’s family but with a very unethical twist.
The NDP is running the donations through itself in order to issue political donation tax receipts which are extremely lucrative. Also, as a non-profit society, the Broadbent Institute would be unable to issue any tax receipts.
This loophole is close to fraud in my eyes and exposes the lie to all the NDP previous phony piousness on being a Party doing things different. (see here)
